In a statement, a member of the Syndicate of Gas Station Owners, Dr. George Brax, expressed “the general fear of a global economic downturn, especially a European one, and a decline in growth as a result of the negative impact on the economic movement of the high exchange rate of the dollar globally against other hard currencies, as well as the rise in energy prices, which results in a decline in the demand for oil, which leads to a decline in oil prices in international markets.
